We didn't know what this guy would become, which, for a time, was one of the top hitters in baseball. Eventually, he'd become a World Series Champ as well; a San Francisco icon (who scootered on city streets to games and connected with fans in a way that 99% of players don't); and now, a post-playing career podcaster on The Athletic.
He was certainly one of my favorite players during his era, but he wasn't a first-choice pick for me to build a player collection of. Yet I seem to have stumbled into a Pence player collection anyway, and now I'm all-in. I probably have less than 30 cards of the guy's, but here are ten of them that give you a good sense of the man/myth/legend.
